Whether a recreational or elite sportsperson, injuries happen.
The hand surgeons and therapists at St Joseph’s treat many sports injuries, including:
Some conditions need to be treated with surgery but many are able to be treated by our hand therapists using non-operative methods, such as casting and splinting.
Following periods of immobilisation (when required for healing), exercise programmes are created to help restore range of movement and strength and functional rehabilitation is provided to help patients return to their chosen sport/s.
